Question about GE Energy Star WCVH6260F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer won't stop!

My washer has been saying "1 min" on the timer for over an hour now. I put this load in on a cycle supposed to last 1 hr, 13 mins, at 1:30 today and it is now 4:30 and the thing is still going. :( What's wrong?

Viv, hopefully it's just your filter thats clogged with lint and stuff. You will have to remove the front lower panel and the pump filter cover will be right in front. It just unscrews and pulls out. These models have a pressure switch that will not allow the machine to advance into high spin if it detects water in the tub. This is an easy job, just grab some towels and be ready for some water when the filter cover comes off. Clean out the stuff and see it fixes the problem..Catriver..post back.

    We had the same problem with our GE front load washer GCVH626. The filter had a child's sock. We tried another load after cleaning out the filter, but the washer stopped at 30 minutes, unlock and started to make a humming noise. Once again, we unplugged, took off the filter and nothing was blocking. What else could be wrong?

My maytag mav6200aww washer stops at the rinse or the spin cycle. However, if I wait about 30 min it will work. Possibly a bad timer? Are they difficult to replace?


If the washer is working properly in the wash cycle & not the rinse or spin cycle, I would suspect a defective timer especially with the delay of 30 mins you described. Replace the timer with this part.

be sure water is draining out before spin starts if necessary remove bottom panel and clean pump out and ck hoses to pump be sure there are no excess suds ..wash only full loads small loads or loads with 1 heavy item will cause washer to sense off balance and try to balance load this will extend cycle time

Long wash cycles


WHEN YOU WASH IS THE WATER HOT ENOUGH IN A REASONABLE TIME? ALSO DOES THE WASHER SENCE THE AMOUNT OF SOAP THATS IN THE TUB. IT COULD BE GIVING ADDITIONAL RINCES TO REDUCE THE SOAP CONTENT.(TRY WITH NO SOAP IN SYSTEM AND SEE IF TIME IS SHORTER)

Long wash times


I've had this problem, particularly with towels - it's quite annoying & not energy or water efficient at all. According to the manual, the unit has a sensor that senses if there is too much soap & it will continue to wash until the soap is removed. I found that this happened frequently on the "cotton" cycles & max spin. I've tried to make sure I use less soap, but I also use the perm-a-press cycle & the spin 1 down from max. Hope this helps
